I searched the forum and found some relevant info, but it was older. so i’m not sure what still applies with the newer version of pleg.
I have 2 questions
lights off = (NOT tKitchenMotion) AND (cKitchen_LightsON ; NOW > 15:00)
this is the condition statement i have for turning my kitchen lights off after they have been turned on by motion
the way i read that as written is it becomes true if there is no motion AND it’s been 15 minutes since the kitchen lights have been turned on.
do i need a self-re-triggering timer for this situation? my assumption is that when motion is detected subsequently the first part of this becomes false (i.e. there is motion) and it starts over with the 15 minutes because for the entire statement to be true both have to be true. is that correct? or does the 2nd part become true after 15 minutes regardless of the motion part of the condition?
if that is not correct and i need to include a 15 minute schedule timer in this situation, is 1 timer sufficient for all rooms or do i need multiple timers?
if i have timer1 for 15 minutes
can i reference that same timer in the kitchen and living room (and other rooms).
does one init of the timer affect another iteration?
basically do i need livingroomtimer and kitchen timer, etc?
